Daily Debrief: WWDC predictions
In today's video segment, CNET News.com's Kara Tsuboi interviews Tom Krazit about possible iPhone and Mac OS announcements at Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference in San Francisco on Monday.
Monday could be the day that iPhone fans have been waiting for. According to News.com reporter Tom Krazit, who I interviewed for Thursday's Daily Debrief video, Apple CEO Steve Jobs will most likely announce big news on the second iteration of the phone at Monday's in San Francisco. Updates could possibly include, but are not limited to, the inclusion of GPS, a slimmer body, and the ability to connect to the 3G network.
Traditionally, Jobs has used the WWDC to discuss changes to the Mac and OS X. This year, Krazit expects less sexy news on the Mac OS front, perhaps surrounding security and privacy issues. Another source of speculation has been what big cat the OS X 10.6 will be named after. Snow Leopard seems unlikely since Leopard was used last time, but what's left? LOLCat? The Cougar?
